Great South Bay AHEPA Chapter 416 Supports Greek School

September 17, 2021

BABLYON, NY – The Great South Bay Babylon AHEPA Chapter 416, which has its base at the St. Nicholas West Babylon community located in southwest Suffolk County, Long Island, NY, held a Pancake Breakfast on September 12 at the beautiful, new St. Nicholas Community Center following the Divine Liturgy.

The chapter decided this year to sponsor the community’s Greek School. The reason for the function was to educate the Babylon community, Parish Council, the young adult organizations, Sunday School and Greek School students of Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, on what AHEPA stands for, what it does, and how we can provide for our community.

Babylon Chapter 416 sponsored the Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Greek School, and a check in the amount of $2,000 was presented to the school at the event. This money will go towards paying teacher salaries, books, supplies, and other educational tools.

The main objective of the breakfast event after church services was to explain what AHEPA stands for and what Chapter 416 is all about, as well as to show the community that the chapter is serious in providing whatever it can for support.

Chris Manolios, Chapter Assistant Treasurer and son of Chapter President Ted Manolios, is very active with the chapter and his goal is to revitalize the chapter by having increased number of events and increase membership. The Chapter is embarking on an ambitious scholarship program that will be available to AHEPA Chapter members and their families. It is the plan of the chapter that by providing this benefit only to AHEPA members that it will attract new members. As per Chris Manolios, the longer a member is active in the chapter, the higher the scholarship benefit to the student will be. It is the hope that this program will bring in young members as well.

For more chapter membership information, please contact the chapter President Ted Manolios, or Chris Manolios at [email protected].
